    Juventus says goodbye and good luck to Gonzalo Higuain after two incredible years at the club

    Two seasons, two Scudetti and two Coppa Italias. It's been an unforgettable couple of years in black and white for Gonzalo Higuain, with the Argentine forward joining AC Milan today.

    Upon becoming Juventus' then record signing in the summer of 2016, Higuain went on to repay the club's faith in him by scoring a total of 55 goals in 105 appearances in black and white.

    Pipita's first Bianconeri match against Fiorentina at the start of the 2016/17 season would set the trend for his two-year stint in Turin. Entering the field in the 66th minute with the contest deadlocked at 1-1, it took just nine minutes for Higuain to make his mark, as he slotted home a 75th-minute winner in front of a rapturous Allianz Stadium crowd.

    Fitting then that Higuain's last Juventus goal would also turn out to be vital, heading home in the 89th minute at the San Siro to seal an incredible 3-2 victory en route to the Bianconeri's seventh consecutive league title.

    Two shining examples which clearly confirm that Gonzalo was more than just a phenomenal striker at Juventus. At all times, he showed class, grit, vision and a burning desire to win, both on matchday and on the training ground.

    Overall, Pipita scored 55 goals in 105 Juventus matches, whilst contributing 11 assists and creating 95 chances in his two seasons at the club.

    Upon leaving us with countless joyous memories - not least his crucial strikes against Napoli and Torino in domestic competition, and Monaco and Tottenham Hotspur in the Champions League - there's only one thing left to say as Higuain bids the Bianconeri world goodbye.

    Muchas gracias, Gonzalo!
